Chemical and Environmental Engineering Group

Mª Isabel Pariente Castilla studied Chemical Engineering in Rey Juan Carlos University (1998-2003) and received her Ph D in 2008 working on the synthesis and applications of mesoporous materials for wastewater treatment. She undertook two research stays in the Environmental Department (Technical University of Crete) for three months and in the Water Research Institute in Bari (National Research Council of Italy) for six months. Since 2008, she is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Technology of Rey Juan Carlos University with a focus on the Catalytic Wet Hydrogen Peroxide Oxidation Processes. She has written 7 scientific articles on these subjects in international journals and participated in 12 national and international conferences, and joined 2 research projects supported by public funding. In particular, she is currently member of the networks funded by Madrid government (REMTAVARES) and “Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología” (CONSOLIDER-TRAGUA) focused on the design of advanced oxidation processes for the removal of non-biodegradable compounds in industrial effluents, and on the treatment and reuse of wastewaters for sustainable management, respectively.
